Mobile’s own Mulligan Brothers traveled across the country, from the Southeast to the Northwest, to record their sophomore album “Via Portland.”
92ZEW’s Catt Sirten debuted some of the new tracks alongside an interview with the band on Radio Avalon, which you can hear below.
The band is really gaining traction nationwide and will undoubtedly shift it up a few gears with this new record “via Portland”.
Why “Via Portland?” – The band traveled to Portland to record the new record with legendary producer, Steve Berlin, who’s produced the likes of R.E.M. Faith No More, John Lee Hooker, Sheryl Crow, etc. Ross Newell (lead vocals, gtr), says that somehow Berlin heard their debut, liked it, and offered to produce their sophomore album.
Influences? “The cliche songwriters most songwriters cite, Bob Dylan, CSNY, the Guthries, etc. Modern influences include Josh Ritter, Jason Isbell and too many more to name.” says Newell.
Some call their music folksy, Americana, singer/songwriter. Newell calls it honest. “I like to make music I can identify with. Then I’ll never need to fake it.”
